Light Phone II Mobile Phone by Kaiwei Tang

DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Light Phone II

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Mobile Phone

INSPIRATION:
Born as an alternative to the apps and products from tech giants fighting for our attention and data, Light creates products designed to be used as little as possible. People are inundated with apps, feeds and phones engineered to distract us from our lives, and Light Phone II offers the freedom to decide when and how we connect by empowering people to regain sovereignty over digital spaces.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Light Phone II is a simple, 4G LTE phone with a beautiful black & white E-ink display. Light Phone II is designed to be used as little as possible, featuring essential features such as calling, messaging, and an alarm clock (with more tools to come like ride-sharing and music), allowing us to leave our smartphones at home more often. Light empowers us to gain freedom from endless feeds and alerts and will never have social media, emails, or data-tracking.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The Light Phone II is foremost a phone; instrumental in today's world. Light is not a method of memorializing experiences but rather a method to enjoy them in the moment. Light provides a way out from the constant consumption we are inundated with to get back to appreciating tangible experiences and regain meaning and purpose in our day-to-day. It encourages us to leave our smartphones behind from time to time as a refreshing and freeing tool, without feeds or notifications. It’s not about an object to acquire, but a methodology to be exercised daily.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Launched Light Phone II Indiegogo in March 2019 - Light Phone II began shipping on September 4th, 2019 Light is based in Brooklyn, NY

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Digital and Electronic Devices Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The Light Phone II is available in both black (night) and light gray (light) matte colors, which match the lightest and darkest shade of the E-ink, or electronic paper display. The E-ink display is comparable to other e-reader devices and is characterized by its low power requirements, strong viewing contrast and durability. It eliminates the need for a backlight / harmful blue light of traditional LCD phone screens, easing eye strain and is fully legible in direct sunlight. The screen automatically illuminates the interface when viewing in low light. Light designed the phone to be lightweight, splash-resistant, and small enough that it fits in your pocket. It uses a custom Light OS operating system with a Micro USB charging port and headphone jack.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
Light rethinks the phone experience by taking advantage of the latest technologies through a timeless and refreshing design. All of the tools are custom designed for the Light OS and built with intentionality to accomplish specific tasks. Using the web-based Dashboard, users have full control over adding or removing tools they deem essential. So that users can “go light” more often (or forever), tools in development include: directions, calculator, music player and ride-sharing.
